Feature & Follow #9: Reading and Blogging Slump!

Hi folks!
Happy Friday!

Today is Labor Day in the Philippines so I don't have to go to the office and work. I'm sitting here in front of my computer catching up with reviews and wasting time on Tumblr! Haha! :)


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It is where we, book bloggers, can meet new people and gain followers as well!

This week's question is suggested by Take Me Away.

How do you cure a book hangover/blogging slump/reading slump?

Interesting question! For the book hangover in general, I just let myself feel the book for sometime. Afterwards, I will be okay to read another book but in a different genre as the previous one. If the hangover is from a devastating read, I make sure that my next read is a lighter, happier one so I will not feel sad and down. :)

As for the reading and blogging slump, sometimes I just let it pass. I take a break and focus on other things. I've been in a reading slump and it kind of sucks. But I don't want to force myself into reading because it will worsen my inactivity.

-o-

So yeah, that's all folks!
How about you? Do you have an active cure?

  1. I always take a break when I'm in a blogging/reading slump and come back feeling refreshed. New bloglovin' follower.

  2. Taking a break does help a lot, I usually try to focus on other things as well, like a new feature and/or meme. :) New GFC follower :)

  5. I think you're right, just letting it pass is the best. I don't force myself to read or blog or whatever in a so-called slump. That would just end up sucking all of the joy out of everything.

    I recently had my very first book hangover, but I ended up coming up with a good solution to get over it. And I am so glad I did because I have read some amazing books since. I talk about it here: http://www.bookpunks.com/finish-the-best-book-youve-ever-read-and-despair/

    1. I read your FF and re-reading a favorite book is a good idea. :)

  6. I think taking a break is a great idea. You never wanna feel forced to read. That would be so bad! New follower via GFC! Happy weekend!

  7. I'm the same way. In a slump, forcing it usually makes it worse. :D Happy Friday! My FF

  8. I'm so bad about forcing myself to read when I'm not in the mood, especially with my ARCs! But your right, it makes it worse when u do that. Happy Friday :)
